Here's mine. When you drill the holes in the plexiglass, be very careful; it cracks very easily:

many of the newer propane regulators will switch automatically to the full tank but not all will auto switch you will need to read about your specific unit to tell for sure. Also if you open both tanks and use the auto switch feature the empty tank is really not fully empty. Since when you fill the tank the price is normally by the tank size so you are paying again for propane that you did not use. I have always only opened one valve at a time and fully emptied that tank before switching. Yes I have had to get up a time or two in the middle of the night but I always had a full tank to switch to. When I know that I am nearing the end of a tank and going to bed I sometimes will switch to the full tank for the night and then back to the almost empty tank in the morning.

My propane tank cover lifts right off easily. Why the plexiglass window?

This is posted in the Hybrid forum - note the bunk end behind the LP cover in the pic above. On most (perhaps all) hybrids, the front bunk end extends out over the LP tanks when deployed.

If you don't happen to pull off the tank cover prior to dropping the bunk end you cannot see the valve and getting to it via the top flap is a major exercise in frustration.

And, I will add for simplicity. Why pull off a cover when you can just look?


It is a REALLY inexpensive mod. In my case free from parts in the garage.

I think I will use what has been working run off one tank when empty switch to full spare, then fill empty and repeat. On long trips tap both tanks off

Great idea, I didn't consider the bunk end down. I'm adding it to my to do list.
